Trish Regan Wiki Bio

Trish Regan was born in Hampton, New Hampshire USA, on 13 December 1972 – her zodiac sign is Sagittarius, and she holds American nationality. She’s a conservative talk-show host and author, probably known best for the work which she has done for the American channels Fox Business Network and CNBC.

Early life and education

Trish was raised in Hampton alongside her sister Caitlin, by their parents about whom not a lot is known, because the girls respect their privacy; it’s said that their father was a college professor, and that their mother was a journalist who wrote articles for the newspapers “Boston Globe” and “Daily Telegraph”.

Trish’s interest in journalism was born mostly thanks to her mother who often talked to her about her work, and occasionally took Trish to work with her, however, Trish was even more interested in modelling while she was growing up, and in 1994 became Miss New Hampshire, representing her state in the Miss American beauty pageant in the same year.

She studied at Phillips Exeter Academy and played a couple of sports during her four years there, including volleyball and tennis, while she also ran track. Trish matriculated in 1991, and then went on to study voice at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and in Graz, Austria. She enrolled at Columbia University in 1996, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history in 2000.

Career as a reporter

Trish launched her career as a journalist in 2001, when hired to work at the network CBS MarketWatch, which was partly owned by CBS News back then. She became their business correspondent two years later, reporting for their show “CBS Evening News”, while Trish could also have been seen reporting for their shows “48 Hours” and “Face the Nation”. Her coverage of the connection between the Islamic terrorist groups and the Tri-Border region of South America in 2007 won her a nomination for an Emmy Award for Investigative Reporting.

Trish was also a correspondent for “CBS MoneyWatch” between 2001 and 2007, and in 2002, the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists presented her with a Most Outstanding Young Broadcast Journalist Award.

Between 2007 and 2012, Trish worked at CNBC, mostly focused on hosting their daily news shows, while she also created long-form documentary programming for CNBC. After Hurricane Katrina caused $125 billion in damage, Trish worked on the documentary “Against the Tide: The Battle for New Orleans”, which got her nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Documentary, as well as for a Gerald Loeb Award.

Between 2012 and 2015, she worked at Bloomberg Television and anchored their daily global show “Street Smart with Trish Regan”.

In 2015, she began working at Fox News and Fox Business, and anchored her own show “The Intelligence Report with Trish Regan”, while she’s today hosting the conservative talk-show “Trish Regan Primetime”.

Criticizing Denmark

Back in August 2018, Trish spoke about Denmark’s economic model in her show, claiming that it was impossible to maintain and that there was ‘something rotten in Denmark’. She stated that all the Danish people worked for the government, and that nobody really wanted to work; she also claimed that nobody graduated from school there, because they were paid by the government to study.

Image source

Danish politician Dan Jørgensen criticized and ridiculed Trish for her statements, and research then showed that Danish people were happier than Americans, that the country had better indicators of economic freedom and employment figures, and it was also revealed that 79 percent of Danish students completed their studies, whereas in the USA less than 60 percent graduated from college.

Trish failed to apologize for criticizing Denmark, stating that she was trying to prove that socialism wasn’t sustainable.

Comments on coronavirus

On 9 March 2020, Trish reported that the coronavirus outbreak wasn’t as serious as it had seemed, and that the Democrats were using it for their own political gain.

She stated that the Democrats were blaming the US President for the virus which had originated on the other side of the world; because of these comments, Fox Business took down Trish’s show, and then fired her on 27 March. There’s no indication of her present job.

Love life and husband

Trish hasn’t shared a lot about her love life with her fans, but it’s still widely known that she’s today a married woman. She exchanged vows with the American investment banker James A Ben in 2001, in a big ceremony attended by many of their friends and family members; James is today working at the New York company Rothschild as the managing director.

Not long after the wedding, Trish gave birth to their twins Alexandria and Elizabeth, and their son Jamie followed two years later; not a lot is known about Trish and James’ children, as they prefer to keep them away from the media’s attention.

As of March 2022, Trish is married to James A Ben, and they have three children together.

Hobbies and interesting facts

Trish is highly active on Instagram and is today followed by close to 100,000 people, while she’s uploaded nearly 500 pictures onto the network, most of which feature her working.

She’s today mostly focused on covering the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and believes that all supporters of Russian President Vladimir Putin are ‘traitors to the American people, American values, freedom and the western way of life’.

Trish is a dog-lover, and her pet dog can be seen featured in some of her Instagram pictures.

She’s physically highly active, and has a couple of training sessions at the gym every week, thus her slim figure.

Trish likes to watch movies in her spare time – her favorite actor and actress are Al Pacino and Helena Bonham Carter, while a couple of her favorite movies include “Scent of a Woman”, “Scarface” and “Fight Club”.

Age, height and net worth

Trish’s age is 49. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 8ins (1.75m) and she weighs around 145lbs (65kgs).

As of March 2022, Trish’s net worth is estimated at more than $12 million.
